Summer Formal 2011: First Summer School on Formal Techniques

May 23-27, 2011

Menlo College, Atherton, California USA


Formal verification techniques such as model checking, satisfiability,
and static analysis have matured rapidly in recent years.  These
techniques are widely applicable in computing as well as in engineering,
biology, and mathematics.  This school will focus on the principles and
practice of formal verification, with a strong emphasis on the hands-on
use of verification technology.  It primarily targets graduate students
who are interested in using or developing verification technology in
their own research.

We have NSF support for the travel and food/accommodation for students from
US universities, but welcome applications from graduate students at non-US
universities as well.

The lecturers at the school include

    * Leonardo de Moura (Microsoft) and Bruno Dutertre (SRI International):
          Satisfiability Modulo Theories
    * Jason Baumgartner (IBM):
          Hardware Verification: Model Checking and Equivalence Checking
    * David Monniaux (VERIMAG):
          Static Analysis
    * Ken McMillan (Microsoft):
          Abstraction, Interpolation, and Composition
    * Neha Rungta and Peter Mehlitz (NASA Ames):
          Software Verification with Java PathFinder
    * Natarajan Shankar (SRI):
          Interactive Theorem Proving

Students are invited to apply for admission to the school by visiting this
web site.  We especially welcome applications from women and
under-represented minorities.  Applications must be received by Mar 31, 2011.
